drug enforcement officers in walworth county say theyve investigated and cleaned up three 'small' -- but potentially dangerous -- meth labs. fox6s jonathon gregg joins has more on this developing story. the first of three labs was discovered last monday night 'appear to be "one pot" cooking methods.' when town of geneva police were called about dangerous material in a public place. 'surprising, especially

'it is concerning that somebody could leave something that could be potentially hazardous.' captain robert hall of the walworth county drug enforcement unit says 3 labs were found in a 48-hour period. 'they take the precursor to make the meth, they put it into a small vessel, generally a gatorade or a two- liter coke bottle.' the other meth labs were found in a residence in delavan and an apartment in been made in those cases. a third came from searching a second apartment in whitewater. on monday 33 year-old david coulson faced a judge. he's accused of possessing methamphetamine and materials used to make it.

milwaukee's sherman park field, the passion for baseball shines through, especially when you see jonathan pinales out on the diamond. " it's a great sport. just in love with it actually. i actually started playing because of my little brother." his immediate family quickly grew, not from his bloodline, but from the bond he and his teammates in the "rbi" program of greater milwaukee have shared. "we always hang out with each other outside of baseball. like, half the team goes to riverside. so we see each other there, and play for the high school team. and then like on the weekends, if we just go to the pool or something and just kick it, as we say, as in hanging out." they've been kicking it together for nearly a decade. along with pinales, max montgomery has been involved since its inception. "we grew up together and got a lot better as time went on because of our training. and the camps we went to." "rbi" stands for reviving baseball in inner cities and it's a major league baseball outreach program. miguel green started milwaukee's chapter. "we originally started
9:34 pm
team of 8 kids to 12 kids that actually didn't really play a lot of baseball. now we have 6 travel teams. we have roughly 1000 kids in the milwaukee area that are in the rbi program." the teamwork that was developed has helped the players excel on the field. and it's done just as much, if not more, off of it. "it made me realize that never to give up. because i've given up a couple of times...... i was going to give up on baseball. i said, this ain't the right thing for me. then they just sat down and talked to me, like took me to the right path, i should say." person, honestly, because the friends i made here. there's a lifetime of friends. school, coaches help you with it. you know, just the people you hang around with. they help you with every day problems. they help you get to games, you know get places you need to go. they really help you a lot in everything in life." "now i'm trying to take my talent down to clc which is college of lake county. so they actually opened a lot of doors for me to go to college." "now we have young men who are actually going to
9:35 pm
of a sudden they're playing good baseball, they're getting good grades in school, and they're actually driving to the practice. it kind of makes it outstanding to see them becoming adults, becoming successful people in their community." for pinales, before being part of rbi, success wasn't something he even thought about. "if i wasn't in this program, i would probably be on the streets over there somewhere like, joining a gang or something. " " when i was younger i would just say i was going now, realizing what the coaches put in to you, and great teammates you have like i don't think you want to lose that. so i'm just going to keep pursuing that goal." the goal of playing professionally is something many of these players aspire to. so when the brewers chose a former rbi player from chicago, corey ray, in the 1st round of the draft, these kids saw something special. "not many think that kids from these levels will make it. and to see someone like him make it, is really an achievement for him. it makes
9:36 pm
that we can also do it." "it's hope. like if, don't ever give up. he used to tell us that all the time. don't give up. and it actually paid off for him. so, that's what we're going to do. we're not giving up." and green isn't giving up either, as he sees something very special on this field as well. "so now when i see, i know i can look and see all these guys are doing well as far as in high school and middle school. it brings tears to my eyes. i'm very happy for the program." 6 sports. the r-b-i world series was held this weekend, the team from milwaukee made it all the way to the semi-finals until they lost. for more information on the "r-b-i" program, we have a link set up at fox 6 now dot com. tragedy at the water park.. a young boy is killed on a water slide called verruckt .. that's german for insane.. tonight will there be criminal charges.. new information.. a steamy new britney spears video .. but apparently it's
